just imagine using ByteString library with all these runUnsafe calls
flying around :)))  or using immutable arrays - in Hugs, they are
implemented using unsafeIOToST. and the last point - because
almost everything is based on using C calls and they *can* launch
missiles, you should have *every* library function imported to be in
these Unsafe monad. are you really need it? :D
